    I love this type acro. I had a nice bali colony once, it died.
    Proud owner of an Elegance Coral "that lived". (It is thriving whith long tentacle tips...purchased in January 2005.) It has white tentacle tips, I beleive this has something to do with ones that will typically live due to the collection site.

              Would you consider this a lower light Acropora? I've had them before and always seem to cook them.

                i dont know i am going to start them off mid reef then see. it all depends on the lighting on your tank also what K bulbs you have.

                  I just picked one up today in Cologne, which looks to be the same clone as Babiche's; green polyps, lavender tips and green-veiled lavender body colour. I have placed it about 30cm (12") under the lights (250W 10K) slightly off centre. It was previously under T5s.

                  Looks to have a fascinating branching structure. First horizontal, then small verticals.

                              I know it's an old thread but I've had a frag of this acro now for 3 month light acclimating and now it's looking like it's taking off.

                              Bogg,
                              If your still on this site or hobby. How did you get the blues and green polyps to come out? It's gorgeous
